How Quickly Do Top Musicians Make Average Salaries?
As is tradition, Forbes released its list of the world's highest-paid musicians. We analyzed that list to understand how long they would take to make average annual salaries. The results were as surprising as they were illuminating. We discovered that most top musicians make average salaries in under a day, some in a little over an hour. Read on to find out more.
Hi, I'm Ryan Harrell...
...and I'm the founder of this site. Until a few years ago, I was working in the marketing department of a tech company you all have heard of. But my real love had always been music. More importantly, to help people achieve their musical dreams. So I quit my job and started this site to give you the tools, resources, and advice you need to make music your life.
I aim to be unbiased, accurate, and available. I encourage you to get in touch with me if you need help, spot any errors, or just want to debate whether Daft Punk is the world's greatest musical duo of all time.
I hope you have a good time here.
